I read this with my 6 year old daughter. Our favorite part is when Charlotte wants Wilber (the pig) to run around to see if he looks "radient". After several silly instructions, she tells him to do a half-twist with a back flip - which he did. My daughter still laughs about that! A very sweet book to read with your children.
Wilbur was lovingly raised by a girl named Fern. But now he's a barn pig. He's bored and lonely until he meets Charlotte, a beautiful grey spider who also lives in the barn. Charlotte thinks of a wonderful way to save Wilbur from a pig's unhappy fate. Her clever plan will delight you, in this famous story...
Ahhh, Charlotte's web. A classic, right? I think that there are few people who haven't heard of Charlotte's Web, but just in case you haven't, I'll post an overview:

It's not a classic for nothing, folks! This story left me all warm and fuzzy on the inside, and I bet it will for you too ^_^
